Giant Wolf Spider 5E Monster

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my website and thank you so much for clicked on to the 64th episode of our beasts series. Today we’re looking at the giant wolf spider which is just haunting. They’re not the giant variety thank the lord.

Now let’s take a quick look at how wizards of the coast of use these little guys. So the giant wolf spider found under the basic rule set and it is considered to be cr one quarter and let’s you fifty experience points on a kill CR:1/4(50XP). Now let’s quickly take a look at his stats here.


Actually, this giant wolf spider 5e monster is very much smaller than the giant spider, basically the giant wolf spider can hunts prey across the open ground or else it might be hides in the burrow or else crevice, or even in a hidden cavity under the debris.


So the giant wolf spider is considered to be a medium beast, that is unaligned which is interesting because it means your little halfling friend can actually ride the guy. AC of 13, and it has 11 hit points calculated by rolling 2d8 and adding 2, speed of 40 feet and a climb speed of 40 feet as well. Very nice stuff.

  • Type: Medium Beast, Unaligned
  • AC: 13
  • HP: 11(2D8+2)
  • Speed: 40ft, climb 40ft

Taking a look at his stats here, you’ll notice an incredible amount of dexterity, good wisdom, good strength and good constitution as well.

  • STR: 12(+1)
  • DEX: 16(+3)
  • CON: 13(+1)
  • INT: 3(-4)
  • WIS: 12(+1)
  • CHA: 4(-3)

Under skills you’ll see a +3 bonus to perception and a +7 bonus to stealth that is ridiculous. Under senses is blindsight upto 10 feet, darkvision of up to 60 feet, and a passive perception of 13 which puts that over the average for the cr1 quarter creatures very nice stuff. But that’s not all he has some other traits as well.

Traits Of 5E Giant Wolf Spider

Actually, this 5e giant wolf spider has three types of traits those are spider climb, web sense, web walker. These traits are explained below. You can check out them.

Spider Climb: Basically, this giant wolf spider able to climb some of the difficult surfaces and also includes upside down on the ceilings, it doesn’t need to make an ability check.

Web Sense: During in the contact with the web, the spider always knows about exact location of any other creature in a contact with the same web. Very cool….it’s kind of a great way of making like a discount alarm spell.

Web Walker: Always this spider ignores movement restrictions which are caused by the webbing. Which is pretty cool, a very niche but also very cool. That being said, that is not all yet again. They got an action as well.

Actions Of Giant Wolf Spider

This giant wolf spider has only one action known as bite. That action has been explained below so check it out.

Bite: This action is considered to be a melee weapon attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature can be targeted. Also Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) piercing damage, and also the target should be make a DC 11 Constitution saving throw, also taking 7 (2d6) poison damage on a failed save, or even half as much damage on the successful one.

Suppose, if the poison damage would be reduced the target to 0 Hit Points and also the target is stable but it has poisoned for an hour, even though after regaining the Hit Points, and also it paralyzed because of Poisoned in this way.

Now once again the paralyzed condition is really nasty, we are gonna be doing a series on conditions but quick all of you can’t move, can’t talk, can’t really do anything and any attack against it, any melee attacked at least is considered to be a critical hit just because reasons.

Very cool stuff, tragic to find yourself in that position. The giant centipede has the same poison, a cool way of using it though is using it as a discount health potion or even having it as an ingredient to a better health potion or even having it as an ingredient to a better health potion.

I think that’d be interesting because it does technically stabilize a creature just with the consequence of them having an annoying condition for an hour so. It could be interesting i’ll leave that up to you guys though.

In terms of how i’d use in my game i really think they’d be cool for like, maybe some duraguard mounts in the underdark i think that’d be pretty cool, pretty creative or having goblins right on them in various cave systems or maybe even make a goblin breed that lives without sunlight and has adapted some more ghoulish undead kind of qualities to it and they breed these i think that’d be kind of cool as well at least interesting visual.
